Just a quick update to say… I’m absolutely delighted and honoured to be one of the three poets who have won the Women Poets’ Prize 2020 with the Rebecca Swift Foundation. I want to say – thank you to the wonderful judges Liz Berry, Pascale Petit and Malika Booker, and the team at RSF including Aki and Victoria. This is really a special thing for me and I’m particularly honoured that it’s an award for women created by women. I’m looking forward to the year ahead!
Congratulations to all the long and shortlist and fellow winners Alisha Dietzman and Natalie Linh Bolderston. But also to all the women who entered – it’s an act of courage to put ourselves out there! Liz’s introduction was really lovely (below).
